De kampioens-Ferrari van Schumacher wordt verkocht. Als kunst

In 2001 werd Michael Schumacher Formule 1-wereldkampioen met Ferrari. Hij reed dat jaar met de inspirerend genaamde F2001. De auto is volgens kunstliefhebbers zo belangrijk dat hij niet op een autoveiling verkocht wordt, maar tussen de hedendaagse kunst.

RM Sotheby's is de autotak van het wereldwijde veilinghuis Sotheby's, dat zelf voornamelijk bekend is van het verkopen van kunst en huizen. RM organiseert de autoveiling doorgaans tijdens events als de Monterrey Car Week of Villa d'Este, maar ze gaan nu een stap verder. Het heeft de veilingmeesters behaagd om de Ferrari waarmee Michael Schumacher in 2001 van de baan schoot in MaleisiĆ« het wereldkampioenschap in de Formule 1 behaalde als kunst te veilen. 

De wagen komt in november in New York tevoorschijn tussen werken van bekende kunstenaars. Het chassisnummer 211 is de auto waarmee Schumacher in 2001 onder meer de Grand Prix van Monaco op zijn naam schreef. De auto komt compleet met de drieliter V10 die het mogelijk maakt om er nog steeds mee te rijden. Volgens de veilers is het daarmee een stuk 'useable art'. Alle hype om de wagen moet ervoor zorgen dat hij in ieder geval flink meer dan $4 miljoen gaat opleveren. Het is wel te hopen dat de koper de auto niet als een kunstwerkje tentoonstelt, maar hem daadwerkelijk af en toe naar buiten rijdt om de motor weer te laten huilen.
